From Booklist:

Ferguson writes of woods and forest with fervor and reverence. This fierce devotion first learned in childhood colors the book's beautifully written prose, resulting in a lyrical ode to the individuals--all of whom have retained deep connections to the natural environment and to the land itself--Ferguson encounters as he travels along the back roads of New England and the Midwest. As he roams, Ferguson ostensibly celebrates a colorful figure from the turn of the century, Joe Knowles, and if it is difficult to know for certain whether Knowles actually lived in the wild for months as claimed, there is little doubt his story awakened Ferguson to the idea of "waltzing the woods," rediscovering essential truths that to this day remain enveloped by "forest and tides and stars." Alice Joyce
